Now that WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier have firmly established the television spin-off world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it's time to turn our attention to the franchise's favourite mischievous scamp. The MCU has delivered a chequered roster of villains over the past decade. While there's been the highs of Avengers: Infinity War's Thanos and Black Panther's Erik Killmonger, there's also the lows of Iron Man 2's Whiplash and Thor: The Dark World's Malekith. But the most enduring villain of this lengthy saga has undoubtedly been...

After the breath of fresh air that was WandaVision, the MCU returns to its roots with its next blockbuster Disney+ television series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

On the one hand, the hugely popular series revived the public's interest in the Marvel universe after a total void of new content from Marvel Studios for more than 18 months. On the other, it set a new benchmark for daringly unique...

While we still await these two new cinematic entries (barring any...

Arriving just two months after we said goodbye (sob!) to several key Marvel figures, Spider-Man: Far From Home swings into cinemas, offering the joyous exuberance this franchise is fast becoming known for. While the spectre of loss hangs over this sequel, there's boundless fun and pitch-perfect humour to be found within, providing just the escapism needed after Marvel Studios shattered our souls in their previous adventure....

The time has come to say goodbye to one of the most successful and ambitious franchises in cinema history. With a three-hour spectacle to wrap up this phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Avengers: Endgame is the blockbuster fans have been aching for. It's taken us 11 years and 22 films to arrive at this point. Thankfully, the wait has been entirely worthwhile. Curb your anxiety at the door. Marvel Studios have done it again. With a moving impact few blockbusters could ever hope to deliver and an array...

Continuing their string of home runs, 'Ant-Man and the Wasp' is another glorious achievement for a studio we keep expecting to fail, yet seemingly never do. Providing precisely the antidote we needed after the devastating hole left in our hearts with one snap of Thanos' mighty fingers, the hilarious 'Ant-Man and the Wasp' could not be more pertinent. It's time for Marvel to provide us with some fun and levity again, and, boy, do they deliver....
